    Is this portable?  Does it have a chargable battery?

    I started using this speaker when I visited my friends house and I was quite impressed.  However since then I have to say that the Altec Lancing speakers are awesome and seem to have an overall edge whether its in performance or the overall rage of the hertz.  They just sound better to me..  Subjective I know
